Noizefield music news tv Leave a Comment

Wouter Hisschemöller updated the free java app Euclidean MIDI Patterns to v.1.1. Its a really amazing  java application that generates midi notes in realtime, or how the developer says: “polyrhythms generated by a mathematical algorithm”.

“Summer is at it’s end and it’s time to do some programming again. The Euclidean rhythms application I made earlier this year still has a lot of potential for new functionality, so here is the new version 1.1.”

Be shure to checkout the awesome demos:

The features are basic in this first version:

  • Double click anywhere in the lower panel to generate a new pattern. A new pattern is 16 steps with 4 notes by default.
  • Click a pattern’s center circle to select the pattern. A selected pattern shows a double center ring and it’s settings are displayed on the panel at the right.
  • Drag a pattern’s center circle to move the pattern. So you can visually reorganize your screen when there’s a lot of patterns.
  • All patterns with their settings and location can be saved in a file. This is a regular XML text file. The File menu has the familiar New, Open, Save and Save As options. The project tempo is saved in the file as well.
